Russian President Vladimir Putin urged the parliament to revoke the decision to make a military intervention in Ukraine where Russian separatists are fighting with Ukraine security forces. Putin announced the decision to militarily intervene with the hope of restoring peace in eastern Ukraine.
The Russian parliament considered military intervention as the 'first practical step' towards bringing political stability in the region. It however faced grave criticism from the west. The Russian parliament denied accusations that Russian troops are helping separatists in eastern Donetsk and Luhansk region to strike back against the security forces.
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday that the president has sent a letter to the upper house of the parliament to revoke the right of military intervention in Ukraine. Peskov also added that the decision was taken after talks began between Ukrainian leaders and separatists leaders in east. The meeting was attended by representatives from Russia and the Organization for Security Co-operation in Europe.
